why dont pro gun states establish a militia

The state could offer training to anyone joining. They could mandate some sort of time commitment to anyone who joins. It would be much less formal then a national guard. They could mandate anyone who joins have certain type guns and certain type ammo.

As long as it was professionally run, I would imagine lots of people would join. In my state, Missouri, the state could use these people when the Mississippi floods or tornadoes hit. I dont think the cost would be prohibitive. Retired or not retired police and military could teach much for free or limited expense. I would imagine lots of volunteers.

I dont think the constitution means that a person has to be part of a formal militia to own a gun, but if a person was then it is even that much harder to argue the 2nd amendment doesnt allow these people guns.

What do you think? Good idea or dumb?
